Nobody said that remaining in a quarantine during a global pandemic was going to be easy. That being said, the Toronto Blue Jays appear to have an easier job than others because of the potential punishments that await them if they break away from their bubble. According to a report from TSN Blue Jays Reporter Scott Mitchell, if Blue Jays players are found outside the ballpark/hotel bubble that they're required to stay in during the season, they could face fines of $750,000.
If that wasn't enough, there's also a possibility of them facing jail time.
As things currently stand, the Blue Jays are the only ball club whose punishments are known to the public. The team started living at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel, which is connected to the Rogers Centre, on Monday for spring training. They're preparing for their season opener against the Tampa Bay Rays, which is set to take place on July 24.
Toronto currently has 46 players available at the Rogers Centre, according to manager Charlie Montoyo, that are subject to these fines and punishments. There are also 12 others working out at the team's spring training facility in Dunedin, Fla.
